Housing Partnership Workgroup
Working together as housing partners
Twice per year, housing providers and social service providers throughout Multnomah County meet to share resources and training opportunities at the Housing Partnership Workgroup (HPW), convened by Northwest Pilot Project and made possible through funding from the Joint Office of Homeless Services. With an average of 100 attendees per meeting, participants share housing opportunities, learn about resources, and collaborate to support long-term housing stability for low-income tenants.
Affordable building owners and property management companies in our area regularly attend HPW to share resources and opportunities, including Central City Concern, REACH, Affinity, NW Housing Alternatives, and Income Property Management.
Social service agencies and government organizations in the region that address the needs of families with children, youth, adults, and seniors participate in this collaboration. These include Home Forward, Transition Projects, Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, Impact NW, YWCA, Human Solutions, JOIN, Luke-Dorf, Multnomah County ADVSD, IRCO, Fair Housing Council of Oregon, Urban League, El Programa Hispano, and many more.
Trainings and resources
Presentation topics address areas of concern to housing and social service providers, including landlord-tenant law, how to make referrals to social service agencies, and emerging issues in housing policy. Speakers share expertise across a variety of housing topics to help attendees understand complex rules and systems and better provide services to populations with low incomes and experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
Our next HPW meeting will be an online event on Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 3:00pm. Please join our mailing list below for updates and upcoming meeting details.
